Every Journey Begins with The First Step
Welcome to the Palmetto Independent Educators Website! This resource is designed to support two fundamental principles – home education should be both affordable and non-intrusive.
Launched from these core values, the purpose of our Website is two-fold. First most, this resource is here to help members of PIE to succeed in their homeschool journey. Secondly, and equally important, our goal is to help families considering homeschooling find the information they need to get started.
This section provides an overview of the resources maintained through our Website. Where transparency permits, much of our content is exclusive to members. Secured content is identified with a lock and requires a login.
The purpose of the member center is to help members succeed in their journey by making every step count. Our goal is to use the member center to build a comprehensive online resource that will help members make informed decisions toward their educational programs. As the image to the right depicts, accessing and navigating the member center requires a login.
Projects currently underway to be added to the Member Center section are listed as follows:
- Curriculum Insights
- Document Library – S.M.A.R.T. Advantage Planners
- High School Guidance
- Member Discounts
- Record-Keeping Insights
- Support and Co-op Information
The knowledge base section of our Website, located under the frequently asked questions page, is designed to help both registered members and unregistered guests navigate the site.

PIE's Website is an ongoing continuous improvement project. This means that we will be building a comprehensive resource by adding, removing, and maintaining content relevant to homeschooling in South Carolina. Our goal is to process current information and strive for accuracy while keeping our eye on two very important fundamental principles – home education should be both affordable and non-intrusive.
We look forward to working with members in the future and thank you for your patience as we continue to build.
Director of PIE
